HTC Unveils U11 Life Under Google Android One Programme

HTC U11 Plus IS Google's Axed "Muskie" Pixel XL 2 Prototype

HTC will make a significant return to dual-camera phones in 2018

The HTC U11 features a 3,000mAh battery while the U11 Plus has a 3,930mAh battery. However, it has a 16-megapixel camera on the front of the HTC U11 Life smartphone that is ideal for selfies.

Early 2017's HTC U11 is an impressive phone, receiving 4.5 stars in our review, but the company seems to be aiming for that final half a star with its newly launched bigger and better version. On the front, we find the similar 16-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 that can shoot video in 108p.

Moving on to the U11 Life, the phone has inherited the Edge Sense pressure-sensitive frame from the U11 flagship, which lets users squeeze the phone to trigger an action. The U11 Life will be put on sale by T-Mobile on Friday, and HTC's website will start selling the unlocked model on the same day. That's both a move to lower costs and to ruggedize the phone a bit more by sticking the coloring under the surface.

Going by the specification and features of another variant of HTC U11 Plus this is the premium smartphone that also runs Android Oreo but comes with a large HD display of 6 inches with 1440 x 2880 pixels resolution. Though here, as with the U11, it can either trigger Google assistant or Alexa, rather than having to call them out by name. Out of the box, you'll get Android 7.1 Nougat with Google's stock apps and interface.

At the first glance, people will see that the HTC U11 Life as just a miniature of the original U11, although there are a few differences between the models apart from size.

Over all this is a decent upgrade to the U11, the phone will be available in ceramic black and a semi translucent option to show off the NFC bands at the back.

The unlocked Moto X4 can be grabbed for $329 from Amazon if you're a Prime member.

What should you get?

Otherwise, you're getting a lot of what you'd also get on the standard U11, including Edge Sense, the squeezable sides that Google coopted for the Pixel 2. We will keep you updated if that plan changes, but for now HTC's official stance is it won't be bringing the U11 Plus to those in the US.

The company has also announced that it will only release five to six devices in 2018, that will potentially include budget devices around the $300 price range.
